My heart broke over the torture and death of the victims.

serial killer Sheila Labarre, house of horror now,

LaBarre treated her rabbits way better than her lovers. The author mostly writes as a journalist in a clear, concise manner--I like that in a true crime book. Appropriate analysis is presented, but is never boring. The one weakness I found is minor--numerous accounts of police visits to LeBare's farm to view bones and fires. The accounts are bloated and cover the same information. I got a little bored. Still, I highly recommend this book. July 29, - Published on Amazon. This was kind of a bitter sweet story for me as I was a patient of Dr Wilfred LaBarre for many years along with my children too!!

Sheila was the receptionist and now I read this and think of her and I cringe! Great read, bad subject! Can't believe a human being can be so horrific when her "husband" was committed to helping others live a long healthy and pain free life!

He was a wonderful man! He is missed by many!!! April 17, - Published on Amazon. Really good book. Good author.

September 27, - Published on Amazon. I have read this book all the way through with a personal interest as I lived in the state of NH and knew many of the places Mr. Flynn talks about - and even followed the news story through a paper in Dover from my current residence in NC.

It is one of those books that you stay up all night to read. This book was a quick read for me and was extremely interesting. If you are able to get past the jumping back and forth this is a great story and it is worth your time. This is a book I would recommend to my friends, even if it's fictionalized.

Jul 22, Ali rated it it was ok. Giving this book two stars only because it's a fairly interesting, pulpy true-crime story; it is, however, very poorly told. It's difficult to believe the author has multiple awards to his name, as his writing is shockingly amateurish. Repetitive, ultimately uninformative, the narrative jumps around in time and place and tells what little story there is in laughably awkward purple prose seriously, I haven't seen the word "wicked" used this much since reading fairy tales to my children.

What a book!! I was drawn in with the first sentence and couldn't put it down until I was finished. I wasn't real happy with the back and forth way he writes because it leads to certain facts being repeated numerous times but overall it was a fascinating book. Very intriguing and very interesting! I enjoyed it! Mar 23, Allison Herman rated it really liked it. The true story of Sheils LaBarre, a woman who tortured and killed unsuspecting men for sport.

The book was a real page-turner, even if the writing wasn't the best. There was a bit of jumping back and forth in time. But on the whole, I devoured this book pretty quickly. Good for those who enjoy true crime! This is a very unique style of writing from the investigative journalist Kevin Flynn.

His attention to detail is awesome and reflects his perceptions of the past, present and future. A five star book without a doubt. Great story, poorly written I bought the book based on a brilliant podcast I listen to "Sword and scale". Unbelievable story that actually happened, but the writer really struggles to put it together. Should have looked for a video documentary rather. I think not. An interesting and incredibly sad and shocking story. The book was written in a common format, back and forth chapters of the people and crimes committed but Flynn sometimes left me confused with the timeline as to when things occurred.

It seemed that some chapters contradicted prior chapters. Flynn did do a good job of exposing the bizarre conduct of the suspect. I find it difficult to believe that this book was proofread either by the author or the publisher. Many mistakes, Crazy? Many mistakes, especially towards the end of book. Feb 13, Sue rated it liked it. I honestly believe that Sheila was mentally ill. However, she committed these murders and chose the victims in a logical but callous manner. Life in prison is a just punishment even if it seems unfair that she can continue to draw breath and try to manipulate others.

Twisted Couldn't put it down. This woman is just pure evil to the core. You can still feel the evil of what happened there. I've read all of his books 4, so far , and finished with this one, which was actually the first he wrote. It's good, but the others are better. The events of the case are presented well, but overall it didn't seem to flow as well as the others do. I can't say specifically what it was, and I'm definitely glad I read it, but I think the other 3 co-written with Rebecca Lavoie, who he married after this book were "better".

That being said, I bet any author would tell you their writing was better I've read all of his books 4, so far , and finished with this one, which was actually the first he wrote. That being said, I bet any author would tell you their writing was better in their later books than the earlier ones. I mean, duh. Otherwise, my only real critique which is true of all 4 of the books I've read so far is that the timeline gets confusing.

I also feel like I should say this might be just an issue I have with the storytelling vs the storytelling itself, but FWIW: We get thrown into the case at an interesting starting point for understandable and obvious reasons but then when we get more background info, sometimes it isn't as clear as I needed it to be when things happened. And then we are brought back into the "historical present" of the case, and I didn't always make the transitions as smoothly as I wish I had. It's the sort of thing which is much easier to do on TV when you can give certain visual clues to the viewer.

A book doesn't have the same option. I found myself highlighting any specific date references in the Kindle version so I could easily search back and forth for them. It's possible that descriptive chapter headings such as "When Sheila first met X" or some way to cue to reader "hey, this is background! Last but not least: after reading 4 of his books, I find myself wondering: "what the heck is going on in New Hampshire?!

Do other states have similar stories?!

Wicked intentions : the Sheila Labarre murders, a true story / by Kevin Flynn - Details - Trove

Because cripes remind me never to move there! Also my wife is getting a bit concerned about me reading about so many murder books. It's probably good I'll have to wait for the duo to publish their next one! Oct 07, Meg rated it it was ok. One of the first links that was listed was information about this book This book The topic is interesting To top things off, after he tells the reader at the end that no one can really know what really happened I was so disappointed! Keep to the facts keep it simple, make the timeline easy to follow Read read if you enjoy stories about serial killers By the time authorities were able to piece things together and go after LaBarre she was on the run.

When she was caught she claimed she was killing pedophiles, but these men had no history of it, no history of abuse. So was Sheila insane or an incredible evil woman? Crazy or a vicious, calculating serial killer? Kevin Flynn takes us from start to finish in account rich in detail. He gives us the history of Sheila from childhood to her arrest, the facts obtained through interviews and public records. How she was able to manipulate people to help her. Another solid true-crime account that I recommend.

I get that Kevin Flynn is heavily connected to this case because of his career as a television journalist, but there is just too much detail in this book. That made for a very long read. Having read the book I can't decide whether LaBarre is evil or just plain crazy. Maybe a combination of both? She had a horrible childhood, replete with abuse and incest, which set her on a bad path. I believe she was a victim, but she turned into a horrible monster herself. She deliberately preyed upon men who I get that Kevin Flynn is heavily connected to this case because of his career as a television journalist, but there is just too much detail in this book.

She deliberately preyed upon men who were weaker than her by virtue of being cognitively impaired or "slow.
